Our philosophy is to create this holistic, multi-disciplinary support network in each community to facilitate reintegration for warriors and their families. While there are many programs designed to provide career guidance and job placement to veterans, there are no programs currently addressing the fundamental issues of reintegration or career retention. Our focus is on these two areas.

Peer Group

No one knows veterans like other veterans. Dozens of studies have been conducted over the past several years and all indicated the same thing; peer groups are one of the most effective means for a person to reconnect to themselves, their family and their community.

The PHOE3NIX FORCE® is our proprietary peer group for veterans. Our concept embodies the “rise out of the ashes” spirit of a warrior with the emphasis on our 3 Es of - Engaging, Encouraging, Empowering each other. Each peer group is made up of 6 to 8 warriors. Our groups focus on developing positive thinking habits, being mindful, developing personal strengths, building closer relationships with others, learning to appreciate life, being open to new possibilities and deepening their spiritual development.

We do this in a safe, trusting environment of other veterans while serving the community and building lasting bonds with other warriors.

Couples’ “Date Nights”

Our date nights are designed to create special moments and memories that couples need to reconnect and maintain strong bonds. We offer a variety of different dates that include massage, yoga, cooking, arts and crafts, and community service, while discussing topics like communication skills, intimacy, personality styles and a few others. Whether separated from the service recently or many years ago every military veteran couple is welcome.

Couples join our date nights and meet other couples who want to rebuild or strengthen their relationships while deepening their own.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do." ~ Edward Everett Hale

Phoe3nix Force® Peer Support
Our 14-week peer lead model helps veterans navigate the journey home through the experiences of other veterans who have, or still are, on that journey. At the end of the 14 weeks, participants have a better understanding of who they are, where they fit in, and of their value to their family and community. Much of this is done by changing unhelpful thought processes, improving emotional regulation, and developing personal coping strategies.
Veterans Treatment Court Mentor Program
Mentors work one on one with the participants and often participate in group activities with the justice-involved veteran. Mentors and participants meet weekly to work on the extensive list of tasks and requirements for the participant.
Couples Date Nights
Our date nights create special moments and memories for couples to connect and maintain a strong marriage. We offer a variety of different dates that include massage, yoga, cooking, arts and crafts, and community service while discussing topics like communication skills, intimacy, healthy expectations, working together, and personality styles.
Four-Day Couples Retreat
In many cases, our retreats are the starting point for stronger healthier relationships. During our retreats, coupleslearnessential relationship skills. Our retreats provide various activities including,mindfulness practices, yoga, breathing techniques, gratitude journaling, personality assessments, and fun and engaging group leaders. The links go directly to individual buttons for each program. If its easier to keep the blue button with the dollar sign and add the links to those current buttons, I’m ok with that. The main link at the top of the previous page should sort of stand out as it can be used for all programs.
